Have been taking since 2005. Makes me a bit tired within an hour of taking. Nauseous as well...but does seem to keep the symptoms controlled

I was using this at the end of my treatments and stopped using it when I stopped using all my treatment drugs when the Amethyst Bio-Mat helped me so well I no longer needed the meds because I no longer had pain from RA.
Worked well. My white blood count bottomed out and I had to quit the meds, I still have a very low immune system from the medication.

the absolute best thing they have EVER put me on.. when they took me off the prednisone and the methotrexate they put me on this and i felt better than i had in years.
